You want to kno…

“You want to know ‘how’ you will do your dreams. You want a guarantee. I’ll give you one. Commit to tasting the nectar of anything that brings you joy or peace. Get hooked on your own idiosyncratic ecstasy. You will have found your reason. You will have experienced an undeniable power. Then you will listen to yourself. And that is how you find your how.” – Tama J. Kieves

I recently became aware of Tama, and started following her on facebook. Her regular posts and inspiration often seem to come at just the right time, as this post did. I am starting this blog to record a journey I am embarking on. I recently resigned from my day job in literacy to go back to school and pursue my passion of helping people to transition to a healthy, compassionate vegan diet. I have been vegetarian for 18 years, vegan for 4, and in the past several years have been feeling more and more of a necessity to spend more of my day focusing on the true passion that drives me. It was a difficult decision in some ways, because it means taking a step out into the unknown. At this point I am taking 2 programs that I hope will lead me in the right direction, but I don’t know for sure what exactly I want to do yet. But I am trying to be ok with that. I am fortunate to have an incredibly supportive husband, and the means to take a year or so off to focus on this learning. And I’m just beginning to really understand what a process it is going to be. I hope this blog will help me to record some of the thoughts, feelings and discoveries I come to along the way, as I come to “find my how.”
